Notes from Addington Highlands Councilby Jule Koch Brison -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Addington Highlands has notified the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) that council voted to reconsider the ban on Sunday gun hunting, but so far has not heard back from the MNR.

Council debated the forming of a planning advisory committee, which would bring recommendations to council about the Official Plan. Councilor Helen Yanch asked if a committee could be formed, say, two months from now. Reeve Henry Hogg replied that the committee could be formed whenever it was needed; however qualified people are needed to sit on it. Council decided to seek expressions of interest from the public (see ad on page 3).

The Denbigh Waste Site is an ongoing issue that is currently in the Ministry of the Environment’s court. The MoE has raised the possibility that the site could be expanded, and Township Clerk Jack Pauhl has talked to owners of the land surrounding the site. He said that while an application to expand the site would require an amendment to the Official Plan, in principle the surrounding landowners are prepared to sell.

“No snow” was the summary of Roads Supervisor Royce Rosenblath’s report to council. “Are we saving money?” asked Councilor Helen Yanch. “Well,” Rosenblath replied, “We still have to pay everybody, but yes, we’re saving some.”

He said the uncertainty as to when it might snow makes it difficult to proceed with other jobs. They will put some gravel in potholes, but not a lot, as if it snows it will be plowed out again.

- Rosenblath has contacted an engineering firm to get a quote on repairing a bridge on the Hartsmere Road. The township will be submitting a request for funds to repair the bridge to the new Rural Infrastructure program.

- Confusion over sidewalk maintenance in Northbrook has been cleared up somewhat. The sidewalks are in fact owned by the MTO, not the township, and if problems develop with people piling snow onto the sidewalks, the MTO will contact them. Council will try to obtain an agreement in writing from MTO for snow removal

Building Inspector Wayne Kivell reported that 198 building permits were taken out in 2006.
